  • 1pint Beef stock (e.g. 3 oxo cubes)
  • branston pickle


  • STEP 1
    Put oil in pan with chopped onion and gently fry
  • STEP 2
    mix flour and curry powder in a polythene bag, then add the minced beef, mix altogether thoroughly
  • STEP 3
    Tip this in with onion and cook until browned, turning often
  • STEP 4
    meanwhile mix cubes with hot water and stir into meat mixture, finally add 2 tbs branston pickle (or as desired)
  • STEP 5
    Put lid on frypan and cook until meat is tender, about 30-45 minutes, serve with boiled rice and poppodums.
  • STEP 6
    Very easy and as hot as you make it
